Barcelona Plot £30m Bid for Tottenham Winger Gareth Bale

Spanish giants Barcelona look set to sign the Welshman for a reported £30m…

The Welsh player is said to be part of a list being assembled by the Spanish champions, which also includes Arsenal striker Robin van Persie and Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez.

The Catalans will hope they can convince Spurs to part with their prized possession and may lodge a £30m bid to test the north London club’s resolve.

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has made it no secret that he is an admirer of the Wales international, and believes he could be the perfect long-term replacement following Eric Abidal’s recent liver transplant.

The Spurs winger has had another impressive season at White Heart Lane, notching up an impressive 11 goals in 25 appearances for the north London club. However, poor performances from the team in recent weeks have seen them drop one place in the table, now sitting in fourth place behind bitter rivals Arsenal.

If Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League, Redknapp may be forced to cash in on his better players in order to make up for money lost by the club not qualifying for the Champions League.

Bale would make a fine addition to Barcelona, with their style of football suiting Bale down to a tee. It is believed, however, that if Bail does make the move it would be to play in the left back position, one that he has not played in since his early days at Tottenham.

The 22-year-old said of the possible move: ‘If you are talking about Barcelona or Real Madrid, two of the biggest clubs in the world, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime dream.

‘If you said to any young player that you could play for Barcelona or Real would they turn it down?

‘Probably not.’
